American Ariana Grande will be granted Manchester honorary citizenship for her One Love Manchester concert and every way she’s given back to Manchester since the terror attack on her concert.
She will be the first to receive such honour by the city.
Leader of the Manchester City Council told The Guardian, “We’ve all had cause to be incredibly proud of Manchester and the resilient and compassionate way in which the city, and all those associated with it, have responded to the terrible events of 22 May, with love and courage rather than hatred and fear. Ariana Grande exemplified this response. I think many people would already consider her an honorary Mancunian and we would be delighted, if the council approves the proposal, to make it official“.
